What is it
Tiggly Draw can be used with or without Tiggly Shapes (sold separately).
Unleash your inner Picasso and Mozart with Tiggly Draw! Your tablet is your canvas and Tiggly Shapes your tool for creating digital works of art, music, and imaginary creatures.
Tiggly Draw is designed to interact with Tiggly Shapes, a set of 4 geometric blocks that offer a more effective learning experience for young kids, although the app can also be played without these.
There are over 50 features (including unpredictable eyes, mouths, hats and more) with wonderful animations allowing children to use their imagination to create wonderfully creative drawings. Use the camera to save pictures of the artwork. Parents can also share them over email, social networks, etc.

What our experts think
A lovely little creative app with fabulous little animations to keep children entertained! This app uses a simple concept and incorporates a really wide range of body parts and accessories to provide endless opportunities for children to create on screen characters. We really enjoyed watching our little testers play with this app to see what characters they created – it was great to have an app that even toddlers could turn into recognisable images they were truly proud of. We were equally pleased to see the features used in unexpected ways – who says noses can’t be feet! The app certainly inspired their creative side. The children really loved the animations particularly – we witnessed a lot of giggles!
The various accessories were also great at portraying a wide range of expressions, allowing this app to be used with a parent alongside to discuss emotions and help children understand these better. It was lovely to see the options along the bottom change if you were inactive – providing a little inspiration and helping children understand there were lots of options beyond those initially shown.
It would be even better if...
The ability to change the colour scheme in the top right corner was sometimes missed – it would be great to see this highlighted occasionally to encourage clicking.
We’d also love to see it made clearer that you click on each feature to cycle through the other choices available – some children initially missed this.
